We went there as a group and the place is too small to accommodate many people. They tried to make us sit together but the tables were shaking and the plates were paper squares. The pizza was worse than the one I make, but the...More

Very thick and creamy ice cream. Also very cheap for gelato! It has a nice positive ambiance, which I enjoyed.

Years later, Ciao cafe retains its value and quality. The cafe is simple and no frills in decor, but fits the bill for simple sandwiches, desserts and coffee. Staff is friendly and consistent. Hausbrandt coffee is served and you must try an alfagato with a...More

The coffee is as it should be for an Italian speaking café, all tastes and sizes available. The ice cream is also recommendable. Beware: only cash is accepted. I would recommend the owner to accept credit cards, particularly considering cruise ships come and go with...More

Hi Do your Ice creams contain peanuts Thanks

Response from MrCiao03 | Property representative |
Ciao, Our fruits flavors do not contain peanuts, some of the cream flavours contain peanut. But the gelato is prepared in the same place and same machine so it may be a contact with peanuts. Thanks you
